    Peaceful, comfortable, allowed us to check in early, huge room, friendly staff, liked having a radiator Only negative was that doors are too thin and guests are easily heard in the corridor

    great location

    Just one night. Large clean and efficient rooms. Parking at a reasonable price and right in the centre of Edinburgh. What it lacks in old world charm it makes up for in sheer convenience and I thought it was good value. Definitely recommend
